According to Deadline.com, WWE star John Cena has signed on to appear in the yet-to-be-titled Jackie Chan movie currently using the working title “Project X”, being directed by Scott Waugh (“Need for Speed”).
The script for the movie will be penned by Arash Amel, and the story “follows a Chinese private security contractor who must help get oil workers out of peril when the refinery is attacked in Baghdad. Once he uncovers the attack as part of a plot to steal the oil, he partners with an American former Marine who lives in Iraq teaching orphans. The Marine had been fooled into thinking he was working to seize illegally gotten Chinese assets before he learns he was had and partners up with the Snow Leopard Commando.”
The above movie joins a list of films Cena currently has in the works, including “The Janson Directive” for which he will team up with The Rock, and “Bumblebee”, the “Transformers” spinoff movie being released on Christmas Day this year.
Cena most recently stars in the new YouTube Red series “Dallas & Robo”, and you can watch episode one below:
